A Brush of Hope 2012 ~ October 18 - 28

Allison Crowe's painting of the Northern Lights shining over Gros Morne National Park - ready to be shipped to the Kidney Foundation of Canada, for inclusion in its "A Brush of Hope" campaign. NB if you open up the full foto, discerning cultural critic, historian and wiener dog, "Linkers" can be spotted appraising things, in a characteristic, one-ear-back, pose of concentration.

For the next 10 days, October 18 – 28, 2012, the Foundation’s eBay gallery displays more than 100 artworks - all proceeds from the sale of which benefit kidney research in Canada. Since its inception, more than $100,000 has been raised for the cause by this artful approach.

In this year’s gallery Allison’s “Northern Lights” hangs with creations by a wide range of Canucks, including: a meditative rocker who helped Allison get her start in recording music – Bif Naked; Food Country chef Michael Smith; wrestling’s Bret “Hitman” Hart; musician and man of letters, Leonard Cohen; comedians Elvira Kurt, Ron James and Brent Butt; New York Islander hockey centre, John Tavares; and the Kidney Foundation’s own Linda Garwood.
